New Life Plan

Achieving Self Sufficiency

Decades of experience working with homelessness tells us that implementing true change takes time, and dedication. We are dedicated to assisting those willing to commit to the task of achieving self-sufficiency. We work diligently with our clients to prepare them to re-enter the workforce, earn a living wage and build the skills for a fulfilling career and life. Our end goal is to provide stability, and a means to earn an income so that clients can move into their own rental housing, and eventually purchase their own home. We do this by providing:

  • Life skills training
  • Vocational training
  • Financial coaching
  • Transportation to and from work
  • Purchase of automobile
  • Childcare
  • Transitional housing
  • Permanent housing

After immediate needs are met including spiritual, healthcare, and hygiene, our clients begin work-based training to develop the skills and character needed to have successful employment, and overcome issues that are negatively affecting their lives.  While staying at the Mission, clients can be trained in:

  • Housekeeping / Janitorial
  • Food Service / Culinary Arts
  • Retail/Marketing
  • Maintenance
  • Administrative
  • Landscaping
  • Early Childhood Development / Childcare
  • Warehouse Management
  • Construction

Along with daily responsibilities, and with the job and life skills training we provide, we know when our clients are ready to seek a job outside the Mission. We then partner with other agencies and employers to help individuals obtain jobs. Additionally, transportation to and from the workplace can be provided.

We have a 6 phase New Life Plan that guides our clients through the different phases that will lead to self sufficiency:

We often have a waiting list for this program.

“My homelessness goes back 20 years. I could easily have passed in my sleep. The day my name came up on the waiting list, I was about to give up and relapse. It was a do-or-die moment. Within 30 minutes of the call, I was doing the intake. It was a blessing.” – Maxwell
